Game on, Leona Chin! Volkswagen Motorsport driver, Jari-Matti Latvala, has gone on record to accept the former’s invitation to a gymkhana-style showdown that is now set for September 4 at the Setia City Convention Center. The Malaysian drift sensation had earlier on issued the challenge via video to the 14-time rally winner, who is set to swing by Malaysia for a visit.

While Leona herself has been active in the local motorsports scene for some time now, it was a recent viral video that, arguably, made her a household name. In said video, Leona portrayed a mousy learner driver to lull unsuspecting instructors. Upon entering the vehicle however, the instructors were “treated” to a demonstration of her skills as she piloted the car around a car park in a rather spectacular fashion.

So with both parties agreeing to the face-off, all we have to do now is wait for it to take place this coming Friday. Who will you be rooting for – the local talent or Volkswagen’s flying Finn?
